The Municipal Museum of History and Archaeology of Cullera have risen on a 16% during this period, due to the 1900 people who came to the museum located in the castle found on top of the well-known mountain of the locality. They have now signed an agreement with the Universitat de València through which a meticulous and professional cataloguing of all the pieces exhibited is made possible.

We are talking about a very technical and assiduous work whose objective is to classify each element and create an attached dossier or archive which collects all significant and interesting data on each piece thanks to its photographs, weighing, reference and description. This data collected in technical sheets can be subsequently used for piece loan and exchange between museums or other institutions. Apart from brining more information to the exhibition, it serves as a source of publications or to be used in disseminating and the promotion of activities based on archaeological heritage. As explained by Amparo Jover, Heritage Councillor.

The person in charge of this action is a student from our Master’s Degree in Archaeology of the Univeritat de València, who is under the supervision of the Museum’s director, Kike Gandía, and his own Master’s Degree tutor. The activity is also useful for the student, who will be able to acquire theoretical and practical knowledge on material cataloguing, and on a direct way, detailed information on the exhibited materials. Undoubtedly, an experience which will allow the student to develop a series of aptitudes which will be helpful for their professional training and for its working future. Gandía insists that this collaboration allows carrying out a complex task which could not otherwise be done if it were not for the programmes and agreements signed by the Municipal Museum of History and Archaeology and the Universitat de València.
